We are truly honored to be finally hosting the AMAZING Kira Floofie for our "Winter Forest" fine-art shoot this year!
I'm sure Kira needs no introduction to many of you but for those who have not yet had the chance to shoot with her don't let this opportunity pass you by!!! Kira is a top-tier traveling model and one of the most sought after in the business. Her work can be seen the world over, shooting for such high-profile names as Tommy Hilfiger, Adidas, and Aveda. She is an amazing talent in front of the lens, truly a professional, not to mention a whole lot of fun! She's a very talented artist in her own right, too!
Not only is Floofie here but we will be building an all-new, even BIGGER, fantasy-inspired "Winter Forest" set this year, with 9ft trees, bushes, 60+ gallons of snow and glass glitter ice, all within a comfortable, 600sq ft professional photo-studio. We will have a variety of antique, hollywood regency, and eames era furnishings for photographers to use if they wish, as well as some furs and other props and clothing articles.
Lighting will be provided! Photographers will be able to use our two studio strobes with 53" PLM modifiers, as well as up to 6 speed lights, all with stands, radio controls, and a variety of modifiers. Photographers are welcome to bring their own lighting equipment if they like but, in the interest of time, we will only allow them to be used on "Stage 2" in front of our V-flats and not on the main stage (yes, we will have two shooting areas).
We will be limiting this MeetUp to only 6 photographers to insure everybody has plenty of time with Kira. This will be a "group shoot' format, with each photographer rotating one-on-one time with the model and stage of their choice. That photographer will have the radio commander for the lights and will be in charge of the shoot while they are on deck. Other photographers are welcome (and encouraged!) to shoot natural-light photos while the model is working with others (our studio has excellent natural lighting, BTW) so long as they don't interfere with the photographer on deck.
Beginners, this is for you as well!! If you have never participated in a fine-art shoot this is a GREAT opportunity to try it out! We will have a mentor on site to assist you with lighting, camera settings, and interacting with the model as well, so all you will need is your DSLR!
This will be a winter-themed, fantasy-inspired, fine-art, nude shoot. Our focus is the beauty of form and photography as an art form. As such there will be no suggestive, erotic, or explicit photography allowed, it simply is not the intention of this event. That being said, due to the subject matter, this is an 18-and-over event.
Again, don't miss out an this awesome opportunity to shoot a world-class model on a truly unique set. This is going to be a lot of fun and we will all get some excellent images! All this for only $79!!! Water and light snacks will be provided.
See you there!!!
